The Warren girls soccer team saw its 2012 season come to a close with a 6-2 loss to Villa Maria Monday in Erie. Villa Maria jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first five minutes, but Warren cut the lead in half in the 13th minute when Jaimie Eaton put Kaitlin Ishman through and Ishman beat the keeper to make it a one-goal match. Both teams had chances late in the first half, but Villa scored the only other goal before halftime to make it 3-1.
The Victors struck first in the second half to make it 4-1, but Eaton headed home an Ishman free kick to make it 4-2. The Dragons had additional chances later in the half, but would get no closer, ultimately falling by a 6-2 count.
"Our team really came a long way over this season and once again we will feel the pain of graduation," said Warren coach Bob Domville. "We have nine seniors that have been very instrumental in the success of our program."
Those nine seniors include Reid Yarzabek, Kate Ressler, Paige Rimer, Sabrina Anderson, goalkeeper Amanda Pinkerton, Lauren Butina, Kirsten DiPierro, Erica Blair and Eaton. Warren finishes the season third in its region with an overall record of 8-10.
